Twitter reacts as T.J. McConnell shot the game winning basket over Carmello Anthony

The Philadelphia 76ers point guard T.J. McConnell never ceases to amaze fans all over the country and last night was no different.

It’s fun to share our former Wildcat with the world, especially T.J. McConnell.

The always positive and humble Arizona Basketball alumni T.J. McConnell shot over the New York Knicks star Carmello Anthony at the buzzer to win the game. “In all my years of basketball that was my first one,” stated McConnell. The Sixers beat the Knicks 98-97 because T.J. never gave up, he used a spin move he has practiced many times.

Twitter blew up after our beloved T.J. made the game-winning shot against the Knicks after Kristof Porzingas missed terribly on the other end. Making a basket is not what made this play exciting, it was the circumstances and the exhilaration and euphoria displayed post-game.

Sean Miller must be proud of McConnell, shout outs to the team and the fans.

Twitter and McConnell’s team reacted, you would have thought this was a playoff game, but that happens when you have a young team who desperately needs a win.

Some fans are calling for T.J. to be voted into the NBA All-Stars, which is fun.

BearDown T.J.! We still and will always adore you and cheer you on! You have our NBA All-Star vote!
